Last spring Jaymie Michelle Thurler became a published author at the age of 18. Thurler wrote and Joel Fawcett illustrated a children’s book entitled My Mother Nature. A year later the North Dundas District High School graduate was one of about forty to attend a Save the Williamsburg Library meeting that took place last night. She writes about her experience here:
Jaymie Thurler writes: On my way to the “Save the Williamsburg Library” meeting tonight my thoughts were who really needs a library now a days when we have Google for anything we need to know. I am only going because I’m an author and well I should go. But during the session my thoughts were changed! A library isn’t just a room filled with overused donated books, it’s one of the last hopes we have as a community. In our Internet filled reclusive lives, where we don’t need the company of our neighbours to entertain us, we simply push a button and have the whole world at our fingertips. But I just need to say, you don’t realize how important even just your presence in a room can be until it can change some one else’s life, and how important it is to be present and involved in your community.
